NCAA asks Oklahoma to focus on athletes' employment

The NCAA has asked Oklahoma to enhance its compliance education program relating to the employment of athletes as part of the school's continuing probation following rules violations by former quarterback Rhett Bomar.
In a letter sent to the school last month, Committee on
Infractions assistant director James A. Elworth asked Oklahoma to
emphasize the proper use of forms provided to athletes, their
employers and coaches.
When the school ran into trouble because Bomar and two other
football players were being paid for work they didn't do at a
Norman car dealership, Oklahoma was unable to detect the violations
because it wasn't making sure athletes were filling out employment
The letter was released Friday after an open records request by
The Associated Press.
